Discussion on: Hosting a Node.js application on Windows with IIS as reverse proxy

This rather looks like a DNS problem. Is there a DNS record for rlcnodetesting.rlc.corp.jgsummit.com pointing to the IP of the server where IIS is running? And is the subdomain in the bindings of IIS itself on port 80?

I would turn off the reverse proxy first and point the IIS website to a physical path with a static HTML file. That way you can ensure that the IIS binding and the DNS settings for that subdomain are working. Once that is verified, you can add the reverse proxy and go from there. It will be easier to troubleshoot where the problem resides.

Dude! I think it's working, my problem would be the DNS itself. I'll ask our network administrator regarding this. But definitely, the URL rewrite is working. I just made it blank on my hostname to make it work. Thanks so much!!
